The first Part of Volume 21 of the Insolvency Law Journal includes three interesting articles on different aspects of insolvency law. The first is by Amanda-Jayne Bull, who argues that distinctions remain relevant with regard to receivership and the PPSA. The second article comes from Brad Strahorn and looks at the nature of corporate insolvency practitioner liens. The final article is by Mark Wellard and analyses the inconsistent approaches taken by courts when interpreting provisions of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) which address debts or expenses “incurred” by receivers, administrators and liquidators. There is also a Recent Developments section and a Report from New Zealand.
